Pyro-Textiles Sleeves a Hook and Loop Closure can withstand repeated exposures to molten steel, molten aluminum and molten glass up to 3000°F (1650°C).
Its unique Hook and Loop Closure allows application in-situ without the need to dismantle and reconnect fittings and terminations. Repair of existing installations is performed with a minimum of labor and downtime.
These Sleeves are roughly textured and are made from Sleeves Woven incombustible Knitted E-type Fiber glass yarns with diagonally chequered air gaps of 5 mm at distance every 3mm providing self-cooling in a flexible substrate and are covered in a thick layer of red silicone rubber which provides a high level of heat and fire insulation.
These specially designed compound sheds molten metal splash immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs.
When exposed to flame, the silicone rubber transforms into a crust, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer thus providing effective protection against burns from hot hoses and flexible steamlines, while reducing heat energy losses.
